I've been looking into the idea of a permanent pier but find that all locations are a major compromise. Living out in the country certainly has its benefits for stargazing but I'm surrounded by huge trees a large barn and of course the house, What I'm wondering is how should I prioritize each section of the sky? That is, would you think the south is likely the part of the sky with the best targets throughout the year? I'm living in the state of Maryland with DC 30 miles to the west and Baltimore 30 miles to the north in B5 skies.
Any thoughts much appreciated.
